Detailed Description

VSG extension [PREVIEW] [Medical] Shape node that draws the intersection of a plane and a box.

This node is useful for highlighting. The intersection of a plane and a box in the general case is a polygon with up to six points. If the plane does not intersect the box, nothing is drawn.

This node is particularly useful for highlighting the location of a clip plane (using the bounding box of the geometry) and for highlighting the outline of an oblique slice (SoObliqueSlice) using the bounding box (extent) of the volume. The plane field may be automatically updated from a dragger or another node such as SoClipPlane or SoObliqueSlice using the connectFrom() method.

This node is derived from SoLineSet, but the standard fields of that class (numVertices, startIndex and vertexProperty) are managed internally and should not be modified by the application.

The color, line width, etc of the intersection lines can be set using SoMaterial, SoDrawStyle, etc nodes in the usual way.
